The Monday after Thanksgiving is one of the busiest online shopping days of the year.

For those who didn't venture out to the stores at 4 or 5 a.m. on Black Friday, tomorrow is what's called Cyber Monday.

Retailers offer all sorts of deals and incentives for those who want to buy holiday gifts online and avoid the crowds and long lines at stores.

"I might take a look at what they have on sale to get an idea of what I'm going to buy in the next few weeks," said one Colorado Springs shopper.

Employers may not want to hear this, but retail experts say some employees will do their holiday shopping at work if they have internet access at the office.

Experts also say to be careful when you're shopping online.

-Shop at sites you know
-Make sure you're not signing up for other offers during checkout
-Print out web pages documenting anything you buy
